facts. two billion dollars in direct spending in san francisco economy has already been lost. between 2010 and 2019 because the center was not big enough. these were groups that would have come to san francisco but decided not to because there was not enough space. the increase and average daily rate will be immediate and a long term, each time that we expanded and build one of the two buildings in the past, mascony, south, north and west, the revenue has grown and sustained itself and we believe that it will continue to happen with this next expansion, the revenue per room is the way that you value the hotel revenue is expected toin crease, 6.7 to 5.5 percent. that converts into hotel tax into the city's general fund. the occupantcy will grow to 86 percent when the expansion grows. >> the projected occupantcy of the rooms? >> since the rooms is where it comes from, we have to say that the hotel will benefit from the assessment. >> where is it at? >> 1.5 percent. >> what is the occupantcy? >> it is about 80 percent this year. >> 79, 80 percent, thank you. >> excuse me, office of econo
. that's important in the economies of scale and fighting the inevitable battle with the opponent, the competitor. the other thing i didn't get to talk in the previous item that was alarming to us right now what staff is telling us is that their intention is to always have the commercial customers be an opt in. and in mirren they did not do it that way. they included commercial customers recently in their full opt out process. in san francisco most of the energy is used by commercial customers. we will not be able to achieve that big beautiful build-out that we're planning without those commercial customers being put into an opt out so enough of them stay in to get the bonding ability and the economies of scale to make sure that we can do the full build out and hire the thousands of people, et cetera. thanks. >> you said that marin opt in? >> no, marin, they did their initial thing a couple of years ago. they just completed their enrollment and enrolled all of their customers a few months ago, and that included commercial customers who were then able to opt out if they wanted to.

to be participating in our great economy in san francisco we have to find a way for better transportation routes to transfer people up north and down south of the city, and when we call ourselves a city as a transit first city there is no better example than that than what is reflected in the plans for the central subway. this project is a vital enhancement of our public transportation system. it's going to significantly improve the movement of tens of thousands of franciscans and if you were here this past weekend when people were predicting it would be jam san francisco instead of san francisco you knew that folks were educated because of the great leadership at our mta, our county transportation, all of our transit systems and were at the highest level of educating the visitors and others to use public transportation. it will work for all of us and as we build the housing units we identified in hunter's point and treasure island and welcome more people to our great city and we are growing as a result. we are going to have the greatest subway system that can connect to our bart, to our cal
appreciation for president obama and it was his idea of stimulating our economy to get these funds and we're going to use it for a long time. we're going to make this a great foundation, so tech sf is about utilizing those funds, creating an association with these technology companies that are creating the new jobs and the new products that come out. asking those technology companies to help us identify the skill sets, and then working with our educational institutions like san francisco state or city college which we invested on and want to continue their success and make sure there is curriculum developed so the skill sets that they want and those that are really growing and we have in addition to twitter and zinga and sales force we have products like the ones that are newly forming and moving into market street that are coming up. jack dorsi 's company and using the cell phones to we can buy everything off the phone. >> [inaudible] >> that's right. these other companies are moving in. they're helping us transform physically but we're also asking can i get a chance of working in tho

and working with target we can actually deliver them and this is the prochgz a good economy brings. this is what working with business is all about. it's what working with corporate citizens like target is all about and the jobs are here not only because of target but you have shown a great effort with our schools. the backpack give give a way program was exciting with the schools and the grants and it's a wonderful time to work with you as a corporate citizen so i look forward to a great icon of a city target store here. it is part of a brand news revised buildings and restaurants in the grownt floor and meeting spaces -- i think i will hold a few fundraisers up top with that city view and fun to do and of course when my wife says "we haven't seen a movie later" we will get down here and it has it all here. we welcome target for being here. we thank you for your corporate partnership and the partnership on the hiring and we look forward to a great partnership for years to come and west field and united way of the bay area and i want to say thank you to the wonderful team. th
go down because of labor concessions and helpfulness in a bad economy. >> i think within the typesful things that rates pay for, the easiest to explain are bond issues. especially if it's a bond issue like the bond that were approved by the voters, you asked us to do it, you gave them monies, we promised to repay the loans that we have taken out. that's why your rate went up by this amount. that's very ease toy explain. it buys you seismic safety and reliability. that is an easy explanation to give. the hardest one to give is within operating. operating funds, so many things, some big, some small, that is just hard to explain it. now, if we start from a position that we want to keep things as loud as we can and provide explanations as to the forces, if any, that drive you above that, then i think that goes a long wail to completing an understandable story as to why rates have to be what they have to be. >> what form do you want this to take? >> i will move this as an amendment to the policy that is in front of you. >> i was just going to ask you to read it again just to be -- because
's the economy stupid". this is about legislating against those seen less than the ideal. you just read the comment and [inaudible] the chronicle, the comments on facebook. if everyone looked like a super model we wouldn't be here today. there are many people with clothes, behaviors that i don't like but i coexist with them or i turn my eyes or turn the other way. when it comes to [inaudible] owner who is against this and sells giant breasts for halloween near the toys. her windows are the most sexualized on castro street and for the fair and this is clearly becoming an issue that nudism is confused with sexualism. it is also i believe proponents of the wild car and not far in the store before you see sexual items back in the store, so let's move beyond the hypocrisy and move beyond the fact that children aren't harm and let's oppose this proposed ban. it's far too reaching and will change in san francisco and gent triifiy it forever. >> thank you. thank you. next speaker. >> hi. i am ron and an artist in san francisco. i have been here over 20 years and on and off since i was
. but anyway, given that barrier is there. and there could be economies of scale, i assume. i'm not a developer. it's too bad that we have this kind of situation arise. another question is going to be a dumb question. the redevelopment agency did own schlage lock site ; is that correct, no? >> no, actually most of the site was owned by -- my goodness, i'm forgetting this. ingersoll-rand, by the ingersoll-rand corporation. a small part was owned by [speaker not understood] as part of the agreement over the contamination of the site ask clean up of the site, ingersoll-rand's portion was transferred. so, they are the owners of schlage lock. [speaker not understood] if the redevelopment plan was fulfilled and the site was dedicated for affordable housing. that would be the only way they would come into ownership. >> and just on the bay lands issue, do you think you would ask john switke to attend one of our presentations? >> yes. we can tie our presentation to you with the release of the draft e. i. -i-r that is coming out in brisbane. i would emphasize that staff in brisbane has been excellent at
it diversifies the economy if that's true. >> and i think that is borne out by some of the recent discussions we've had with sf may and their members. there's a lot of new small, for lack of a better term, boutique manufacturing that is starting up in the city right now. and they are seeing their membership grow substantially largely from new companies. and it is a' having an imp there is a second discussion of p-d-r. overall 26% varies substantially by sector. there's one sector manufacturing -- other manufacturing, i believe, where it's dropped off quite a bit, then it's picked up. so, we're kind of seeing some of the same effect there. * tech difficulty >> commissioner antonini. >> one final thing on your regional distribution. you may not have control over this. it may be drawn up by abag or somebody else. east bay, south bay and san francisco. the south bay includes san mateo and santa clara counties. i hardly think of [speaker not understood]. it's really you need a separate category for the peninsula, you know, and makes the distribution a little bit more realistic in terms of what peopl
and the economy, i think we had two buildings that closed that have inclusionary requirements and it was not significant. we had a few ownership units, a few rental units and that's it. this year it looks like we'll have 12 buildings close, maybe 60 -- maybe more, about 40 ownership units and a lot of rental units. we have about 60. rental program is starting to outpace our ownership program which is in sync with what's happening in san francisco. many developer are choosing to receiptction -- rent for a period of time. that's addressed in the manual as well. what do we do for buyers, owners and developers who are building ownership units? first, we updated and clarified -- i'm just following along the memo that was provided with your packet. and if you need a copy, i have extras here. first we updated and clarified a lot of the -- many of our financing rules, including require choirtion a loan for your approval before someone applies for a unit. that's supposed to help make sure that qualified buyers are buying but also developers can be reassured their units will sell in a
struggling in this economy and that they have to deal with the aftermath of something like that is simply unacceptable. i want to take this opportunity to thank the department of public works, to mohammed nuru and his crew who are working diligently following the incidents. he had a large crew cleaning the streets. and in recognition of the burden that this has on these small businesses, i asked mr. nuru that the city actually help with the clean up of the graffiti. usually it's the property owner, the business owner that is tasked with having to clean it up. but given the magnitude of what happened, i think it was appropriate for the city to take that responsibility itself. and i want to thank him for dedicating the resources to do that. we have an obligation and responsibility as we celebrate to ensure that we protect our small businesses. we will continue to work with the department of public works to make sure that we help those businesses that were vandalized. but i think it's important as we move forward in continuing to celebrate the victory by the giants and we have our parade tom

seen economic growth in other business sectors as well in the economy. and what that means is oftentimes we have more visitors at our hotels and those hotels use more water as well as the restaurants. this translates to more water water treatment as water goes down the drain and down the toilet and that is good news on the wastewater side as well. where warmer weather doesn't necessarily help us, in weaker power cells because there's less hide generation as the water comes down the hill so we have a slight shortfall in our power enterprise. the next slide here provides for you one of the fund balance reserves, basically at beginning and ending checking account balances and what you have planned. in the water department we're nearly doubling our reserves from the end of last year to what is prkd projected. the wastewater department is up slightly, very similar to plan. and then in hetch hetchy water and power reserves are projected to go down to 47 million. this was planned because you had invested over 30 million of that into cash funded capital projects. so that's not a su
